Situated on Mayo Beach in Wellfleet, MA, this two bedroom, brick cottage is a Cape Cod classic. The perfect blend of old and new, this cottage is fully equipped throughout including wireless internet, free national long distance, hardwood floors, fireplace, antiques and original artwork. It is literally steps away from the bay, down the road from a full playground which includes tennis and basketball courts, and a short walk to Wellfleet Harbor and the center of town. If location is everything then this spot is perfect. You are literally 15 minutes from Provincetown and Orleans by car and all the entertainment and restaurants that these artist's colonies have to offer. Whether you want the tranquility of endless hours on the beach or a little excitement on a rainy day, it is all seconds or minutes away.
I have always love the water. I had a dream of owning a property on the water. This dream became a reality in 2000. This photo is a photo of me at 7 years old! I'm on the right.
Rosemary Milliman purchased this cottage in 2000
Renters say that my cottage is so cozy and that I've thought of everything. I consider people who rent as extended friends. Many renters have become friends.
This property is close to everything. If you don't want to travel to the beach .....you're home!
We were pleasantly surprised by the level of detail in the cottage. You've obviously thought of everything we might need! This is not your typical "beach cottage". It's much more like a home away from home on the beach. Our two children ages 4 and 6 had such a wonderful time in the bay beach. The playground was an added bonus right down the street. We had lovely weather but even when it rained we didn't mind because the cottage is so cozy. We lit the fireplace and enjoyed the lovely surroundings. It was great to grill outside. Having the choice of a gas grill or charcoal was super. Sometimes we had both going. We will definitely be back!
Thanks for opening your lovely cottage to us!
I fell in love with Wellfleet nearly 30 years ago, when my husband and I started bringing the kids, staying in other cottages along Mayo beach. After a long absence, we wanted to return and begin a new tradition of summer week-long retreats to Wellfleet with our 15-month-old grandson. Those cottages were sold in recent years, and it was time to scout out a new place for our Wellfleet escapes. After reading the glowing reviews and seeing the photos, we chose both Beach Rose Cottage and it's twin cottage next door. It turned out to be the best decision we could have made for our extended family, and we had plenty of room to spread out.
These sweet little houses are clean, modern, cozy and comfy, with lots of little touches that make them stand out from the rest. Both cottages are bright and airy, inside and out, and It's obvious that Rosemary takes great pride in their presentation and upkeep. To my pleasant surprise, linens were provided, as well as beach chairs, umbrellas and even beach toys! A washer, dryer and even a dishwasher are available, and the grassy yard, flowers and herb garden add a homey touch. The fenced-in backyard allowed our grandson to wander safely, and the huge outdoor shower was an added bonus - especially for those in our group a tad too tall or stout for the smaller indoor showers.
With the beach just feet away, a playground, ice cream, fried clams and even the quaint little town just a short walk away, and the Cape Cod National Seashore just minutes away by bike or car, there isn't a better, more peaceful location in all of the Cape. We're already planning our return for 2015!
This cottage had all the amnetities we were looking for and the outdoor shower was a great addition! We loved that we had an herb garden plus anything you could think of that was needed to cook in the kitchen was provided. The location is perfect with easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants and the cottage is right across the street from the beach!
The property is fantastic, the pictures don't do it justice. It is a quaint, beach cottage that always feels like you are right at home. It was well stocked with everything you need. The area is great and I will be back next year. I highly recommend it!
It was a snowy weekend but the cottage was clean, cozy and welcoming. So nice to have a fireplace to relax by in the evening and being so close to the water was great. My daughter and I found the kitchen to be very well appointed. We needed nothing. Thank you Rosemary you thought of everything and working with you was a pleasure from start to finish.
3rd time at this cottage in Sept. and love it still. Well equipped kitchen for cooking. Beach just steps away. Short walk down the street to restaurants, fish store, shops. Playground and town park. Cottage is cozy and outside grounds have comfy furniture and fireplace for night fun. Most Enjoyable!!
This is a great cottage. Our family of four was cozy and comfortable, and enjoyed the quietude of the place. The kitchen was very well stocked - great knives :) - which made us feel right at home. It was a chilly and windy week, so although we ventured into the warm(er) water of the bay, most of our adventures were inland (biking) and on the water (canoeing and whale watching). The whale watching is not to be missed! And of course, the fish n chips. Mmmm.
Rosemary's place is a lovely home base. She returned our deposit within a few days and is very responsive.
Enjoy your vacation!
